Is anyone else getting worse performance with Windows 8.1?

I haven't had a chance to test it on my desktop computer yet, but on my laptop some games and even desktop programs are running noticeably worse than they did before the update.

Aside from the obnoxious mouse issues in some games, nope.

If they asked how I died tell them: Still angry.

Yes.

Not only that, but there is a watermark I can't get rid of on the lower right corner now.

Windows is fully activated and everything. Why does Microsoft think that people want to see that?

Where? Desktop or metro or both? I can't see one on either screen.

Not sure, I haven't been able to test any games yet. I installed Windows 8.1, updated my video drivers, and have since only gotten blue screens every time I boot.

Well, I was having that problem, until I reformatted this afternoon and put on Windows 7. I used Windows 8 for two months. No more.

Guess I'll avoid it then. I don't understand what all these problems could be coming from. Did they even change anything with Windows 8.1?

Seriously the only 2 things I am using 8.1 for are the better located shutdown menu (right click the start 'button') and the custom backgrounds in metro mode.

In addition to worse performance, I've actually had the OS lock up twice so bad I had to do a hard reset of the computer.

Mine is on the desktop, not on the Start Screen.

I have two Windows 8 PCs that I upgraded to Windows 8.1, and only this one (the one I'm using right now) has the watermark.
